Guest reviews: the reviews below are taken from those written by guests on Tripadvisor. Via our website you can view over 250 guest comments which have made us the number one place to stay in Marche (out of over 1000 places listed)
We are Bob and Ian and moved to Marche 8 years ago to set up Casal dei Fichi. We left behind successful careers in London to move to a less stressful way of life in an area often described as 'all of Italy in one region'. We live on site with our two dogs, 3 cats and 5 chickens. We are very proud to have established a reputation for helping our guests have a fantastic holiday and we are now the number one rated place to stay in Le Marche (out of over 1,000 places listed by Tripadvisor).
We choose this property to renovate and convert into apartments because of the view - it has a wonderful panoramic view of 360 degrees and it is the first thing that most of our guests comment on when they arrive! The area is truly stunning and we love the slower pace of life in rural Marche. We also chose our area as it is less than one hour's drive from the airport which we think is an important factor for our guests - why be driving when you can be sat by the pool with a glass of local vino!
We have tried to create a friendly, stylish and comfortable place for your holiday. We are there if you need us and we are always ready to give advice, book a restaurant or organise a day out or event for you. If you like your peace and quiet then you have it by the pool or in your own private garden.
Please join us for our weekly complimentary pizza party based on our original brick oven in the garden - great fun to make your own pizza and share it with your fellow guests.
In the grounds you will find an orchard, herb and vegetable gardens and our free range chickens, please help yourself to our produce - nothing better than fresh ingredients straight from the garden!
Finally we have worked hard to make sure you have everything you need in your kitchen to prepare your meals. The feedback we get is that we have thought of everything and we have tried to equip your kitchen to the same standard as you have at home.
